I haven't posted anything here in a while.  Don't worry, I'll be getting back to that soon.  I was just taking some time off after a hugely successful [ profile] het_bigbang.  But, until then, here's the meme.  Comment with a question number, and I'll answer!

I am apparently Meme girl this week ;)

First off, I'm not dead.  Had a lot of RL stuff to get done (nothing bad, thankfully, just time consuming).  Now I'm working on a couple of challenges that are coming due in the next month or so.  So there will be posts, I swear, but not for just a bitty bit.  Also, ahem:

Yeah, I signed up for this.  You know that Star Wars fic I mentioned in an earlier post?  Yeah... so, that's what I'm writing.  I also still have my amnesty round challengs for [ profile] hc_bingo and [ profile] spnpairingbingo still to do, not to mention that reading challenge (which, in all fairness, I am working on, despite my lack of updates).

Oh, and did I mention?  I'm pregnant!  With my second one, and I'm due in June.  Have a lot on my plate.  A lot.  Like, really, a lot.

Yeah, so, I totally finished a line on HC-bingo!  One day, I swear to God in Heaven, I will manage a black-out bingo.  But, under the cuts, are all the shineys I got for it!

Yeah, so that was awesome, and the achievements were totally unplanned.  I was done to one last fill, looked back at the others I had done in that line, and was like, "Why not?"  The link to the card is still over on my links list to the right so you can click through to see all the fills I did.  I need to do an amnesty post for all my unused fills.

Also, in other news, I did not post a bingo again to my own bingo comm of [ profile] spnpairingbingo.  I got lazy and wasn't feeling good when it came down to the wire.  Not really an excuse, I know.  But, anyhow... I'll post an amnesty post there as well for all the fills I did do.

In other news... I may be doing a bad, bad, bad thing...


I have so many, many, many, MANY unfinished fics... but I think I might be committing to a Star Wars chapter fic.  Nothing really solid, but I did chat with [ profile] twisted_slinky last night, and we were both talking about our nonverbal, totally verbal committment to fics we shouldn't be committing to.  I really, really want to do a Post-Suit Vader/Padme fic... and she may have helped me figure out how to do this without using an idea from other fics that have done this.  But that's just the tip of the iceberg.  More on this later.  I may do some art once I get the ball rolling...

I don't think I have any challenges due any time soon, and that may be part of my lazy fandom problem as of late.  I should seek some out.  Any suggestions?

Nothing ficcy or arty here, just a little ranting.  First off, I've got to rant about this person.  And I'm not gonna use a name, and I have to do it here and not on my facebook because too many people would know.  And I feel bad.  Yes, I do.  I'll get to that in a minute.  But, before we get to my full-on rant, I just have to talk a little bit about my writing and the speed-bumps I've hit.  I put each rant under cuts, just in case you wanted to scroll past one or two.

So, yeah, I totally signed up for that.  Oh, what happened to my two bangs, the [ profile] spn_gen_bigbang and [ profile] spn_hardcore_bb?  Also, [ profile] twistedshorts August Fic-a-Day?  Well, my computer died, that's what.  It just fuckin' died.  Now, I'm on a borrowed computer until I can afford a new one (income tax return, anyone?) trying to build together everything I need to complete certain challenges that I can still be working on.  Also, signed up for an artist on this (and will also sign up for writer if allowed):

And I still have my [ profile] zombi_fic_ation Bonus Round fic to, ahem, send in.  Um... yeah.  As for the stories that I was working on for those challenges I got rudely interrupted for?  One was almost finished, so I'll finish and post that.  Probably do art for it myself.  And I hadn't really started the other, so I think I'll just hold onto it for another challenge.  Also, NaNoWriMo this year, [ profile] twisted_slinky and I exchanged prompts because I wanted something fresh to think on, and I love it.  Truly, I do.  So much so that it sucks that Nano isn't here yet.  Anyhow, that's what's going on with moi.  And, finally, I will leave you with my thoughts when my computer died in the form of a gif (not mine):

So, I think [ profile] twisted_slinky has probably sung this from this rooftops here on LJ, lol, but if anyone out there is wondering why I've seemed to have disappeared from the face of the planet--i.e. haven't turned in any challenges stuff in a while--it's because on Aug. 29th, I gave birth to my son--and my first child--Connor.  I'm so super excited to be a mom--and sometimes, I still can't believe it.  But, during the labor, my son--in his eagerness to join the world--tore out of me... literally.  I bled a lot, so much so that my husband got pretty scared that he was going to lose me.  I was kept an extra day in the hospital so they could give me a blood transfusion and try to get my cell count up.  When it evened out--still low, but didn't lower--they let me out, but I'm now on an iron supplement that I have to take twice a day.

And as if that wasn't enough to tire me out, I also have a newborn, lol.  So, sleep feels like this to me lately:

And, furthermore, starting about two weeks before I gave birth, I began to have a bad flare up in my already-existing carpal tunnel, and had a Novocaine-like numbness in my thumb, index finger, and middle finger of my left hand.  It continues, and I'm really hoping that it'll go away soon enough.  As I typed elsewhere today, just writing this journal is requiring a level of concentration that I haven't had to use since I first started to learn how to type.  So writing's a bit like Dean_i_cant
But I haven't forgotten about my challenges, I swear!  I'm going to try to get my hand to function at some point tomorrow--not today, I'm tired, lol--so that I can work on them.  I know I owe one to [ profile] spn_bigpretzel and another to [ profile] villainbigbang.  Not to mention working on a couple of bingos.  Also not to mention my non-challenge-related fanfics. And the fact that I want to start writing for Yahoo! Voices... which used to be Associated Content, for those wondering.  Oh, oh, and my original fiction.


P.S.--I don't own any of these gifs
